VINEMONT, Ala. – At the Vinemont Town Council meeting Tuesday evening, council members discussed possible uses for the American Rescue Plan funds. The council received approximately $88,000 last June and will receive another portion again in June. In October, $32,847 of the funds was allocated to repaving Ridgeway Street.

Chris Thompson suggested using the funds for clean up at Henry Row Wood Park. The council discussed the possibility of creating a contract for having the park grounds cleaned and detailed once a month. Thompson said, “That could be a really nice park that the whole community could use.”

The motion to accept the adding of the additional streetlights on Hwy 31 was approved. Public Works Director Mike Graves stated, “There’s going to be 12 installed going North on the East side. The others are going to be alternated and upgraded going South on the West side.”

The South Vinemont Town Council holds its regular council meetings on the second Tuesday of each month at 6:00 p.m. at Vinemont Town Hall. The public is invited to attend.
